    So here is the Mark II I'll be cleaning up and replacing some of the electronics. I'll even do a new paint job because it's starting to rust and that will just continue. A new coat of paint will prevent any future rust once I clean it up. New wiring will also be done. Transformer seems to be lacquered pretty good compared to the mark I wt's so ill inspect it to make sure it's got the right voltages on it.

    Hi Nauz,

    Ive spotted one of these on ebay.co.uk. Going for £250 with no takers. Im very tempted but it outside my price range really and Mrs Snake will be non too pleased! It has been reduced from £350 to £250, maybe it will come down again. If so, maybe i will ride the wrath of mrs Snake and get it! It will make a nice electronic project. Not done any electronics in years so will be fun!
    We shall see....

    Hey snake,

    Man if it goes down further then the 250 euro that's more of a steal. I have seen these in about 99% with everything still on the machine sell for around 1K$ for the blue/black mark II WT model. Make sure you read the description and see if there is anything not running. The most expensive thing I believe in this unit to replace is the transformer. So if the transformer looks okay then that's also a plus. Another thing to note is if it has all the baskets and cups. Those alone are pricey.

    Snake is it the red/gray model wt or blue/black mark II wt? Don't get the A-1 but the A-1T should be a better model as well.

    Snake,

    You euros use 220v right? I'm not sure what would be needed to convert the machine to working order but I know for a fact a lot of people don't like to refurbish the A1's due to the fact they over heat. This is probably due to the electronics and me personally not viewing this specific model. I wouldn't be able to comment much on it if you where to try and refurbish this model. I'm sure it can be done with some more money dumped into the machine. I'd hold off for now till a A-1T or WT becomes available. That's what you really want is one of the two models noted above. I always see them come up for sale.

    Actually the transformer would need to be redone to accept the Euro voltage and then wound according to what the machine uses in its circuit. The person who rewound my transformer charged me 160$. But the transformer will last a lot longer then the one made in 1960's.
